“My personal favorite in Barcelona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2013

This is my second time at Semproniana. In my opinion is the best catalan-cuisine restaurant in Barcelona. The "pasta fresca amb verdures i llagostins" is really tasty and perfectly balanced, a crispy oven cooked pasta on the bottom and two tasty shrimps on top with some sweet salt on it.
Then we had the "llauna de salmo'" and the "llauna de pop a feira", the first one is a sardines can filled with chopped smoked salmon with some dill foam, the second one is a really soft and tasty octopus with potatoes. The duck magret was delicios too. For dinner we had the delirium tremens, a chocolate brownie covered with hot chocolate. Superb.
The place is very original, like a bohemian library. Tables are at a right distance one from the other one, so it's perfect for a romantic dinner. The idea of offering every dish in 3 sizes is indeed a very good one.
Will come back again for sure.

“Really Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2013

better to make a reservation before. Meat is delicious, we ordered 4 different meats and loved them all, differents plates (xs, s, m or l, funny). decorated with vintage style, so good taste. Service a little bit pushy... no a lot of pushy... On the overall, it was a really pleasant experience.

“"Barcelona = Semproniana"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2012

Ιs one of the best restaurants in Barcelona!!!
I do not know what to mention first: the decor, the menu or the service? everything was great....
I visited with my husband and my two daughters. The first was sick this day with special needs and the second, one years old, a baby.
However the staff was very helpful and always with a smile.
Αte the black rice and it was something I had not ever eat it again. Divine!!!!
Also ate fresh tuna with lime, honey and hot peanuts. And this was great!
There are no words for this restaurant...
When I say Barcelona = Semproniana

“Barcelona spirit in your dish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2012

I think this is the restaurant that better represents the Barcelona cuisine. They serve you original dishes with revisited traditional ingredients. Sometimes you can think the menu is too short, but I prefer few dishes very different from each other, instead of choosing between a long list of similar ones. Furthermore the atmosphere is really peculiar and you should pay attention to every single particular of the furniture. Wine list is really good also. This is my favorite restaurant in Barcelona for eating something which is originally from the region.

“Nice Catalan modern Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2012

I love this place. The decoration is a mix of tradition and modernity, but keeping the spirit of Catalan interiors. The service is sxcellent, their wine selection is perfect and the food is a very original turnout of the catalan kitchen
